Rewarding environmental services of forestry is increasingly being demanded in Germany. Recently, four different proposals have been mooted which particularly relate to the climate protection service of forests. The present Working Paper appraises and compares the possible effects of these four proposals, with regard to their possible incentive and distributional impacts; their consequences for forest enterprises, downstream markets and the existing subsidisation system in Germany; the criteria applied for securing the climate stability of forests; the administrative implications of the individual proposals; and their compatibility with rules of the international climate regime, and the evidence based carbon balance of forestry and wood utilisation.
